National Trails Day! Eastern Washington - Spokane Area. Join us for a day (or two) of trail improvements and maintenance within Spokane's Iller Creek Conservation Area. This lush riparian corridor contains 163 invertebrate species, 86 bird species, 15 mammals and 2 amphibians. We will address additional maintenance projects on trails within the area. The work will involve coming up with solutions to divert water of the trails, cutting back brush, and other much-needed projects that will be determined by your crew leader.

The Iller Creek drainage begins at south end of property and flows through cool, north-facing valley along lush riparian corridor and contains 163 invertebrate species, 86 bird species, 15 mammals and 2 amphibians. The area provides white-tailed deer and Rocky Mountain elk winter range and migratory corridor and a nesting area for Red-tailed hawks.

The Project: We will be doing preventative maintenance and some reconstruction on the East Ridge of Iller Creek Trail. The work will involve digging tread, brushing, drainage work and other activities.
